Yup - I finally figured that out. I copied yours to get it into my last post.

But, I am not without talent. If you want, I can get you a deal on a Gucci watch.

Gucci, huh? . . . Will it be as good as my $13.99 Tag Heuer?

All the Bolivian watch companies are good - you know, Rolex, Gucci, Patek Phillippe, Cartier, etc. Not sure about Tag Heuer. I think they’re made in Paraguay.

$13.99 seems kind of steep. Hope this helps.

And I may have misled you with that price I gave . . . it was actually two for $14.99, but I hondled him mercilessly.

Damn! My watch deal career is over. As a result the global economy is in shambles; and with the possible exception of Seņor Frogs and a few Old City taverns, there is little reason to visit San Juan.

And yes, JC, the watches look real and work fine - well, there have been some complaints about wrists turning green, but I think those were mostly catamaran sailors.
